BBJong comments on Sep 29, 2019:
Thanx for making us all ( men and women ) think.
This came up on another post, but your opinions please ?
BBJong comments on Sep 29, 2019:
I see them being exclusive since theology keeps the us and them stance. Philosophy to matter has to be based in fact-hence inclusive and relavent. I may judge harshly but a closed mind precludes "knowledge". I recently watch a Buddhist state how closed minded western philosophy and science has been to any Eastern influence. The end of the debate- we have NO Proof that there is no continuation after death.Hence gleefully Religion is seen as the ONLY "authority" on life;morality;mind;human conciousness. By gazing at the huge windmill of religion-we are missing the flower โ—‡real study of the depth and breath of the human mind.(strengths & weaknesses). Great post ๐ŸŸ
Maybe it isn’t that you are too sensitive.
BBJong comments on Sep 29, 2019:
Telling others-you do you/i do me -is a long term ( engrained) habit of mine . We know ourselves best; with men usually the attack is by insecure folks...with ulterior motives.
It's going to be an awkward day for me today.
BBJong comments on Sep 29, 2019:
I think you brave, this is tough ground. Trying to be considerate (as you are/have been ) is doing the difficult relationship maintainance that allows for growth and change. That should be adequate.The immediate members of family are the THE CRUCIAL aspect-not distant observers or their motives and influences. The wellbeing of your child is in competent hands,,, keep the focus on thoes facts. Finding common ground there is the purpse of the occasion. You can love someone; yet differ entirely with their beliefs/world veiws. THANKS

Horrible ; let the human free to REALIZE thier own identity-how else to achieve their potential. Only arrogance causes this-arrogence over NATURE? WE KNOW that is destructive.
But, Greta Thunberg is just a disrespectful little girl, who doesn't know what she's talking about.
BBJong comments on Sep 29, 2019:
Common sense doesn't need a "degree "; which can be bought and sold. Her insight strkes at the heart of the matter: we are jeopardizing the(her)future by pillaging the natural systems that maintain ALL humanity. A reply to belittle the messenger is part and parcel of the active censorship of the facts. Denial of important facts makes the situation WORSE !!!
The reason women are critiqued for everything...
BBJong comments on Sep 21, 2019:
Thanx~she stated that eloquently. Its a fact that needs to be reversed since OUR futures are totally minimallized unless we bring women's POTENTIAL to the same level as men's. Barely functioning, comes to mind if a society keeps 50%of population out of decisions!!!!

BBJong comments on Sep 21, 2019:
In the 1960's there raged a pitched battle here in the states- mostly young against the old. In terms of clothing , what the person feels comfortable in WON THE DAY. You can easily see why..before that(1940-1950)what you wore was a STATUS symbol. A suit & tie ment that you had "made it" and were "professional" ; NOT ALWAYS TRUE THOUGH. There still exists the pressure to conform. This also is a form of " chasing FASHION ".( Which can display wealth !)-you stay current by purchasing this years style. Again , i thought the sensible goals of a person wearing what THEY chose to wear, was & IS more rational and sensible because they have to PURCHASE and function thier lives in that attire. To judge moral character by the clothing is REACHING conclusions that are untrue. Thanks for the post.

BBJong comments on Sep 21, 2019:

I went through so many changes last year that it was overwhelming.
BBJong comments on Sep 15, 2019:
Making changes can seem like entering a pool. I'm in agreement that a simgle change has ramifications in other areas, which then require adjustments. Hence i feel like im juggling on occasions(i devote immediate energies to get back equilibrium)which creates a nervous feeling. I overthink alot, so feeling the pain and doing the work anyway is my motto in such cases. And some things need revisiting and revising. Thanks

Just keep growing and learning. Resilliance is built not given or issued. Physcologists say that a soulmate is an impractical goal.Our life expierences differ greatly yet we have a overwhelming MAJORITY in common with the rest of humanity. We should critically view and re-access the motivation for our relationionships. Good post.

The truth is so hard to come by-thanx for laying it out. Should be general knowledge,yet in this social enviorment institutions don't defend science(or promote it). Around me the church going sect still see it as a curruption of will power. Or too lazy to enter a relationship(that would be exceptable)that would be condoned.๐Ÿ˜Š

BBJong comments on Sep 6, 2019:
Im in a religious hot bed(socially & geographicly) and you are doing a marvelous job of maintaing your boundries. The "ignore" route works on 78% (or85%)- if they reflect on the conversation later, they should have known that your personal beliefs are yours alone. Gossip partakers? Now , with difficulty i have found the strident-in your face- i'm on a mission people deserve (heeheee) a "little more". Because i am being called to defend something i stand for; but the PROOF is where the issue is. Getting down to an emotional "name calling" level with them resolves nothing. Part brainwashing/part long emotional investment means you are rarely going to make a dent. ( college professors argue contstantly about this very subject). They will quickly lose their human dignity and resort to rants. Like when i found out there is no tooth fairy, i'll cling harder ; no santa (i like kidness and warmth) -but we do not -did not -need aSUPREME BEING making everything(and us) perform. So the facts do win out_/_ you just must pick your battles or its emotionally draining. * Humor helps.* I have folks come to my door and invite me to SERVICES and i remain cordial (i actually pity), family praying for me; co workers who worship objects, but hey i refuse to give up my peace of mind , my tranquillity. I want good in my life , not someone else's idea of good. PS. Nice post, Thanks

BBJong comments on Sep 6, 2019:
Not caring .Most especially in myself,as i know the result. In it's extreme ,it's a form of shutting down. I can overlook it easier in others,and if i care for them i seek a cause for the apathy and can understand their approach to life. If they be strangers,my antenna quivers and i closely monitor until out of harms way๐Ÿ˜...

I have confidence in your insight. We ,in my family have that NEUTRAL TERRITORY. I firmly believe in honesty and self discipline, so i almost always refrain from a negitive OR attack comment. I am here to learn and grow- i don't restrict the of this knowledge ¤ If i cannot control my words~what do i control. P.S. I have seen similar data facets sited through other sources.
I'd like to tell how I got to Agnosticism.
BBJong comments on Sep 4, 2019:
I learned from science recently that a persons brain doesn't form completely til age 26, so the training (or schooling ) we get makes a greater impact. I have tried through out my life to see fact and truth as a comfort. Life itself changes ; we are better and happier with these at our side as we go through life. I'm glad you found a place (HERE, THE SITE) that helps us all learn more & grow.

Religion & science--the topsy twins of human affairs.
BBJong comments on Sep 4, 2019:
Most religions shy away from science ; and have actively worked against it. Like parents critiquing their adult childrens decisions : this at best is a hampering/shackling of humanities ability to refine the original form.- Left with a set of codes to benifit who or what? Instead of advancing with humanity,religion is REGRESSING.
What are your thoughts on people who suffer from substance addictions?
BBJong comments on Sep 2, 2019:
I am in recovery,(opiods were handed out like candy), alcohol my drug. We saw it as a willpower choice and now we know its a chemical imbalance-there gets to be no OFF switch for addicts. We need education , not imprisionment. Yes it is stark- we prioritze punishment as opposed to curing the sickness. Mental health at all ends of the spectrum are underfunded and overwhelmed- we ration these services. Some countries have little or no alcoholism -why . I think they are more comprehensive and less commercialized. A person can become addicted to a veriety of things , and using old methods and band aids is not going to make progress.Science,medicine ,education will enable humanity to realize its potential. Thanx,good post.
Can we respect our disagreements and still play in the sandbox together?

How did you meet your spouse?
BBJong comments on Sep 2, 2019:
....very sweet,thanks for allowing a glimpse of bliss. lifes moments like that are worth striving for. I met Maria as she was a rental manager,of my apartment build., she made the first move and impressed me with her honesty. We bonded instantly; since her family(2daughters and an infirmed father) was the focus of life for 7 years we did holidays such as Niagra falls ,and camping trips.She loved the shore/ me mountains. We grew together then apart, as her children had children;always the best of freinds.

I found out i have this trait about 9 months ago. I have reaserched it . It tends to run in families . There is basic info on utube( you have to filter the garbage) and also on the national institute of health. 20% of the population has it. It manifests itself to people in different ways ; there are basic coping skills that can tamp down the ACUTE reactions and minimize thier occurence, but YES there is a basis in science fact about the way you feel and react. Social pressures can be more pronounced at certain ages and times in life , so take assesments( like the ones found in this group) and validate you needs.
To preface this, I'm not opposed to dating, I just think I'm not necessarily looking to date right ...

BBJong comments on Aug 25, 2019:
I am glad i found this ; eloquently stated, it reflects alot of my expierence in life. Some of my siblings chose a similar path that took years(2-3decades) to arrive at similar life principals and conclusions. And like you,i am subject to interaction with some "VERY RELIGOUS and stridently conservitive " family members. So out of 7 siblings ,2 fall into a category that would be80% PERFECTIONIST 20%(or less) Individual.They remained that way throughout their lives(sheltered as these were),while the rest through marriage and life expierences became more pragmatic and dropped the pretense of perfection.Also the time of social upheaval was very pronounced when my formative years occurred . I rejected the conscripts of religiosity partly because i saw MUCH TOO MUCH hypocrisy (and do today). The pulpit telling me about meat/no meat while race issues ripped at the fabric of society.

Also it is proven that humans need time to digest a fact; Then act on it( incorporate it into action)-i do not quit work to boycott Walmart nonstop ,because they sell guns. I am possibly attending a TOWN HALL MEETING where more in depth action may be forthcoming. I agree the issues at hand are urgent,yet i do not shoot messengers OR throw the baby out with the bath water.thanks
I thought this was interesting. It looks at humor in relationships. [distractify.com]

Yes,tipptoeing around is a form of dishonesty. The negitivity is stiffling. Ladies at work ,were like "Sorry for this " Sorry for that"-man ,i could just screamโ—‡ STOP THATโ—‡. I quietly told them , no need ,just be yourself. I am glad you are who you are-i defend your right to be quirky (look i am). Getting co workers to lighten up would relieve stress, which no one needs. Defacing humor does build bonds, streangthens our resiliance. Thanks
Are you an empowered Empath?

These terms ,i do not think are absolute.Interesting but not to be a "locked in defining" personality trait. For instance: I have a new job;i will be off balance, less confident, meet and encounter narcissists, ect. My coping skills are intact, so i shall prevail over most and eventially all aspects that that are disruptive to my well being( as i had at my previous job).Through the years I've learned and applied the skill set necessary to overcome the issues in difficult situations. Good post ,thanx

After taking the NRA money(and drinking thier KOOL AID) for the 20 odd years; and owning the US senate there is so much inertia. In my state they had to start with the common sense laws that were studied,but never voted on. The back ground checks; the domestic abuse "red flag"; waiting times; the "gun show" and gifting loopholes;update theft of gun records; "bump stock" and retrofit outlaw. 3or 4 of these are before my legislative body(senate-R representatives-D) brought by the Governor -D after they were tabled in the past... frustrating,as the killing continues. The realists in the gun group can see now -they will be judged on were the blood lies. Do we really need 3-4 guns for every man, women, and child?We do little to nothing to account for them once the money is paid.Yet they have a legacy. Thanks.

When the institutions we trust -betray us,we are obligated to correct the difficiencies or get rid of said institutions. Future generations will judge weather we acted morally or did nothing.We are showing our lack of resiliance as a society if we are incapable of correcting the problems.Some problems take years to correct:::if we value the original we need to refine it to remove the difficiencies. Thanks
